On Health & Hygiene // with Kimberly

Hi, lovelies!

This Monday I wanted to branch out.

I think Modesty, for many years, has been given a bad face because it could look like shapeless trashbag-dresses and unkempt, greasy hair, and shoes with the soles falling of. Nice and modest, eh?

Well, if that's what you've got, that's what you've got. But, for most of us, that's not being a very good witness for the Kingdom of God, nor a good example of living a set-apart, purposeful existence in Christ's name. Let's do our best with what we've got!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: "Modesty is the outward manifestation of humility."

Take it into perspective. It's a big picture that none of us have figured out just perfectly, but it's a goal. Let's look nice, stay clean, and take care of our bodies as temples of the Holy Spirit, and not give ourselves too much credit in it. Let's try to reflect our Creator. He likes making things beautiful and orderly.

Maybe that's all just a jumble of fragmented ideas, but I don't want anybody to think that I have anything figured out just right. Because I don't. I just want to try. I want to stand in the right direction, and try my best. Direction over perfection. <3

These aren't necessarily the best things in the entire world, but this is what I have:

Meet Janan: A MoP Blogger Interview

Happy Monday, Ladies!

Kimberly here with another blogger interview! Yay! Kind of was hoping to get another one in back, well, two months ago. But oh well. We're here today, and I'm happy for it!

Today I'm super excited to formally/officially introduce all of you to our newest Modest on Purpose blog team member, Janan! Janan and I met first in July of 2013 at Family Camp on the Bill Rice Ranch in Murfeesboro, TN. We found out we were both from Texas and loved piano, and the rest is basically history. Long story short, though, our Pen Pal-ship turned into me traveling with her family on their missions trip to Burma/Thailand earlier this year (which you can read about + look at pictures of here). After all of that... we can't not be friends. We're glued together forever. Metaphorically speaking, of course. I left her behind when I moved up here to OK.

You can learn a bit more about my beautiful friend on her addition to our About Page, or just keep reading! This is, as a matter of fact, her blogging debut! And I'm excited (how many times have I said that word now...?) for you all to get acquainted! So be sure to comment after you read. So she can say hi and all that. :)

Modest Monday + Sweet Salt Clothing Review // by Elizabeth

Hello lovelies!

Today, I am going to tell you about a modesty shop called Sweet Salt Clothing. What I love about them is that, not only do they have so many cute pieces, but they are also affordable! I am reviewing two of their items, the
Classic Ultimate Half Sleeve Tee and the Floral Breeze Knee Length Skirt
